I got these a while ago. They're good, but they're not proper surround sound and they don't work with the optical outputs so no good with PS3s or TVs with those outputs.

#7
i bought these from amazon for 70, i sorta rushed into it because i was desperate for speakers, i dont regret, obviously not true surround sound, but for the price your getting a good set, the matrix mode sorta fakes the surround sound its still a good deal

welcome back Mike T...it has been a long time since you posted..I bought this set two years ago from Dell and you posted the deal then..it is a great set
#15
Does the master volume go up to 11?
#16
indeed a great price, considering scan is selling for over 60 quid in today's special
#17
I got these a couple of years back, and the input jack messed up. I left it a while (had a 2.1 speaker setup as a backup) but decided to contact Logitech on the off chance that it was possible to buy a base unit separately (the speakers were still good). They were able to tell from the code on the speakers that I was out of warranty, but the sent me a brand new set (including speakers) for free! Very nice of them.

In short, watch the input jack and be gentle with them. Also, Logitech are brilliant.

Erm, they absolutely are "proper surround sound". There are discrete 5.1 analogue inputs.
Electro
and they don't work with the optical outputs so no good with PS3s or TVs with those outputs.

That's because they only accept an analogue input.
If you want to connect something with a digital output - like an XBox 360 - then these are not the speakers for you. You would need a seperate Dolby Digital Decoder like the http://www.scan.co.uk/Product.aspx?WebProductID=923678 to convert the digital 5.1 sound into analogue 5.1 sound that the speakers will understand...

These definately do support "true surround sound" from anything with 5.1 analogue outputs - like a PC.

I think the confusion stems from the included "Matrix Mode" - this is simply to produce a fake surround effect, from stereo-only sources. It's not designed to allow you to connect digital-only surround-capable devices - if that's what you want to do, then these aren't the speakers for you.

Logitech are brilliant.

Logitech are great, just been in contact with them about my VX nano mouse and they will replace with the anywhere mouse MX but i was still in warranty, it's twice what I paid for my mouse.

Got these from Comet about 1yr + ago for £25! Note the remote has a cable attached to it! :(
#25

#26
The only problem is the satellite speakers have to short cables to reach other side of room, but i love mine, great for spotify.listening now.

Sorry to disappoint. They aren't true surround sound.
Three analogue inputs can't represent 5.1 sound (unless faked) and yes I know they only accept analogue input. That's my point ;-)

Ignore the Matrix mode for 1 second - If you have a half decent audio soundcard (X-fi) You can imitate surround sound better on these - it sound better than matrix mode too.

Here's the specs of them

* Total RMS power: 70watts RMS Satellites: 45 watts RMS (2 x 7.4W front, 15.4W center, 2 x 7.4W rear
o Subwoofer: 25 watts RMS
* Total peak power: 140 watts
* Frequency response: 40Hz - 20kHz
* Drivers:
o Satellites: (2) 2" drivers per satellite
o Subwoofer: 5.25" ported driver
* Speaker dimensions (H x W x D):
o Satellites: 8.4" x 3.2" x 5.0"
o Center channel: 7.8" x 4.75" x 3.75"
o Subwoofer: 11.25" x 6.5" x 9.75"

What is your source ?

These most definately are true surround sound speakers. There are six audio input channels, and six speaker output channels.

Please don't spread misinformation :thumbsup:

Huh ?
The "three" analogue inputs are :
1. Front Left and Front Right
2. Rear Left and Rear Right
3. Centre and Sub

Each input connection has two channels...

Hence the most you can get from this is 3 and not 5.

You're obviously missing something here, so I'll spell it out in simple terms :

3 x 2 = 6

It doesn't equal 3, nor does it equal 5.

The first input is a 2-channel front input - it carries the Front Left and the Front Right channels.

The second input is a 2-channel rear input - it carries the Rear Left and the Rear Right channels.

The third and final input is a 2-channel Center and Sub input - it carries the Center and Rear channels.

Count them all up, and you end up with 5 speaker channels and 1 sub channel - hence the same 5.1 designation, and the same number of channels, as a Dolby Digital / DTS digital connection.

There's no magic and no "fake surround" - it's a completely normal 5.1 surround sound system in every way. The only point to note is that it's analogue only :thumbsup:

This may be an old thread, but I need to back up Nom here. It also helps that I'm an audio engineer and get into these kind of discussions regularly!

Yes, Nom is 100% correct. 6 channels can be handled by this speaker set. So, that's 5 speakers and the sub channel.

Front left and right = 2
Rear left and right = 2
Center and sub = 2
TOTAL = 6 channels.

Mathematics...ain't it great! lol

But seriously, surround sound is seen in many guises these days and this setup shows the most common setup available (6 channel surround). So, yes, it is a "proper" surround sound system. I'm running bluray via the PC and my X-Fi soundcard where I can sent 6 channel outputs (same kind of configuration above) to a Yamaha surround amp powering some studio speakers which reproduces surround brilliantly.

Hopefully this post helps you understand what Nom was saying. And to also understand 5.1, better, Electro.
